So which violin should you start your search with? To be honest, any one of them would be sure to impress. Again, these are professional violins, so you can expect only the highest level of quality no matter which model catches your attention. Take for instance, the Cremona SV-1400 Maestro Soloist Series Violin Outfit. As its name implies, this violin is made with soloists in mind; it sports a one-piece maple back that's highlighted with a dark-brown oil varnish, a premium solid spruce top and a boxwood trim. The SV-1400 is also set up to Cremona standards in their U.S. workshop.
Speaking of masterpieces, any professional violinist should check out the Maple Leaf Strings Emperor Artisan Collection Violin. Boasting carefully-selected tonewoods and carved by Maple Leaf's most experienced luthiers (then hand varnished and antiqued), this professionally set-up 4/4 violin is a true work of art. From its stunning sound quality to its amazingly quick response, the Emperor belongs in the hands of any violinist who is driven to share their incredible talents with like-minded classical music lovers.
In addition to individual professional violins, this section also offers professional violin outfits. These outfits typically come with gorgeous bows, rosin and durable cases for your instrument. You might want to consider spending some time in this catalog before making any brisk decisions. By doing so, you can get a better idea of which professional violin is best suited to your personal tastes and playing style.
